Loudoun County’s resident Major League Rugby team, Old Glory DC, has taken the “Loudoun Is Ready” pledge, committing to fan, player, and staff health and well-being ahead of its eight home games at Segra Field in 2021. The pledge, taken in partnership with Loudoun Economic Development, reinforces the team’s commitment to COVID-19 preventative measures, as outlined by the CDC and Virginia Department of Health.

“We are excited to welcome Old Glory DC home to Loudoun County, and salute their integration into our community. In doing so, they become the first professional rugby team to play a game in Loudoun, furthering our growth as a sporting destination,” Loudoun Economic Development Executive Director Buddy Rizer said.
“We commend the organization for taking the ‘Loudoun Is Ready’ pledge and prioritizing preventative safety measures. This is the first year of our relationship with the team, to play its home games at Segra Field, and we look forward to a bright, #LoudounPossible future.”
Loudoun Economic Development and Old Glory have partnered to highlight the benefits of doing business in, living in, and traveling to Loudoun County.
“We’re thrilled to be a new part of the Loudoun County community,” said Old Glory Chairman Chris Dunlavey. “Like the County, we believe in putting the health and safety of our supporters, neighbors and business partners first. So this was an easy pledge to make.”
Old Glory DC competes in MLR’s Eastern Conference against teams from Atlanta, New England, New Orleans, New York and Toronto, as well as play games against Western Conference teams Austin, Houston, San Diego, Seattle, and Utah.
The 2021 season kicks off at Segra Field on March 27, with season tickets available now. After 18 weeks of regular season action and two weeks of playoffs, the season concludes with the MLR Championship Final in August on CBS.
